are expensive. you see it in england. this is the biggest issue. cost containment. especially president obama said maybe my grandmother, maybe she didn't need the hip. about his own grandmother. it's a real concern. freddi >> greg: she's the first under the bus. >> eric: over the cliff. >> greg: right. coming up, a disturbing video from the thing we call the internet that show what is appears to be a toddler getting a tattoo from his mom. did this actually happen or did i just dream it? we will show you the tape next on "the five." ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> bob: okay. warning here, we are going to show you a troubling video that went viral. difficult to authenticate this video. it show what is appears to be a young child screaming while forced to get a tattoo. take a look. ♪ ♪ [ crying ] >> bob: i don't know, i don't believe in the death penalty but i'd begin for that mother if i did. go ahead. >> eric: i have to be honest with you. so we talked about this, doing this story. it sounded provocative, sounded interesting. i never saw the video to be honest until right there. my original thought is
on women, peace, and security. >> i do. and i actually was reading it last night. president obama issued that and i think it's really important. with respect to afghanistan, we have made it clear, the administration has made it clear, and i will support that when i become secretary of state, and that is commitment -- that is the commitment if there is a negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. they have to give up the commitment -- commit to nonviolence, but most importantly with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> i have two more questions. you have been a supporter of see call before, the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. i know it's a tough issue here. i don't think it should be, but it is. i just want to make sure you continue to support the radfication, then i have one quick question on the subject. >> the answer is yes. let me just say on that i look forward to meeting wit
. president obama and chris matthews will say this is a false issue. in white house fact sheet, the first bullet point that the white house makes and the first one that president obama says continuing to strengthen the border security. if i could make a final point, i think that republicans and also democrats should stop thinking about this in terms of politics. good policy is good politics. i don't think republicans should worry about who will vote for them in years coming because of something they do today. they should do the right thing for the economy and the national security. it's better than doing nothing. >> shouldn't it be coupled with entitle reform? >> bob: a couple of things here i'd say. the vast, vast majority of people work and you can see them in city. they are working. they are not near to go on the dole. obama and the senate called for them not to get the welfare grant. the other thing as dana pointed out, she did not point this out, i'll point it out. the border got more and more secure every year. it is good policy. we have to deal with this. if we turn to politics rig
of an issue. >> obama is seeking political victory. obama doesn't care about enforcing existing law. so people say why will he enforce anything that is new. >> once again, limbaugh is clearly delusional. one of the reasons we need immigration reform is because there were a record number of deportations last year. president obama has presided over 1.5 million deportations in four years. it took w. eight years to deport 2 million people. but marco rubio still went on air with the peddler of lies to kick obama on immigration. >> obama is not going to be president forever. as long as the next four years may seem, he won't be president forever. we have to write laws with that in mind as well. >> president obama agrees with marco rubio and other senators on almost every aspect of immigration reform. but republicans are not doing this because they are interested in real reform. john mccain actually told us the truth. they are doing it so they can win elections. meanwhile, our current immigration fiasco takes a tremendous toll. now, listen to some of the callers on my radio show who told me how the cu
. >> the bigger issue here is i think he likes president obama personally. i think he has got allegiance to him because of race. >> bill: he got a little bristoly with me when i zeroed in on him on the racial stuff. >> i know. >> bill: the point i was trying to make he agreed with me that sununu were not racist. their argument got lost both palin and sunuvu's argument got lazy in the shucking and jiving. no one knew what they were talking about. you want your point to be clear. >> as the first black secretary of state i think he has enormous pride in the first black president. that's completely understandable. >> okay. >> what he is doing goes beyond that because what he is attacking are the fundamental tall ideological points of the republican party. economics, for example. he says to you the first election 2008 i voted for obama because we were an economic mess. a lot of people did that after four years, and as you pointed out. economic policy why do you vote for him again? you know what he said to you? he said because i believe in leveling the playing field. everybody should have a fair shot
, by supporting as actively as did you barack obama, you also put yourself in a category of intolerance on issues like entitlement culture. when you yourself were born in the south bronx and you made it on your own. the entitlement culture now extends to 50% of the american homes. all right? huge rise in it. so you're putting yourself in that bracket by supporting the democratic party through barack obama. who their values are different than yours, general. >> yes, i was raised in the south bronx. i can assure it was social security that kept my parents in respectable comfort after they had retired and they paid into that. >> bill: that's not means tested. that's not what i'm talking about. >> i would have means testing in a heart beat. in fact, i should be means tested. i think there are a lot of things we could do with entitlement reform. i think there are lots of areas in our government where we can take a hard look entitlement reform, other areas and there are ways to cut budget. but. >> bill: but the president isn't doing that is he a spender. >> remember one thing, it's the congress that pa
.m. eastern time. a little more than a week after highlighting the issue during his inauguration speech, president obama laid out his plan for immigration reform. the image of a campaign speech, the president went to north dakota where the hispanic population is 20%. >> the good news is for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. this moment it looks like there's a genuine desire to get this done soon. that's very encouraging. but this time action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we have been debating this for a long time. the principles are pretty straight forward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continue k to strengthening security at our borders. we need to implement a national system that allows businesses to quickly and accurately verify someone's employment status. second, we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but fo
. i read last night that president obama issued to that. i think it is important. with respect to afghanistan, the administration has made it clear -- the commitment that if there is in negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> you have been a supporter of the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. it is a tough issue. i want to make sure you continue to support the ratification. >> the answer is yes. i look forward to meeting with the committee probably so we can talk about treaties and america's interest. >> i think there could be some reservation that we could agree on that would resolve some of the underlying current of this agreement. we should move forward on that. last question is about the keystone xl pipeline. how would you ensure any decision takes into consideration the potential impact on water and air quality and mitigate
cain, have you talked to president obama about this issue? >> i have not. >> what are the state of relations these days? >> um, i have great respect for the president. i hope and i believe that at some point we will all be meeting with the president on this issue, because we need to coordinate with the administration. but i think i haven't seen a degree of partisanship overall as there is today, but we are showing some signs of bipartisanship. this thing we just did in averting the nuclear option in the senate, this issue, i think that republicans are more inclined to let the process go forward, and senator reid is more, more inclined to let us have amendments. i see, i think that when we are down to 11% approval rating, there was a favorability thing, different things are favorable, a colonoscopy is viewed more favorably than a member of congress. [laughter] we're in kind of bad shape, to say the least. i won't pursue that line any further -- [laughter] but, you know, i've got this old line, a guy ran up to me in the airport and said, say, anybody ever tell you you look a lot like senator m
it to that, they have leverage. >> bret: a.b.? >> tucker right, we don't for sure is president obama wants a bill which ultimately will be a compromisement but he is not running for re-election and the fact that congressional democrats who have been active on this issue for years, members of the congressial hispanic congress asked him not to come out in an aggressive way and try to best the senate bipartisan group with his own bill. that's why he said today if they don't do it i will have one but he talked about his principles. that is a sipe he wants a legacy and he wants a bill. now, republicans at the same time because there is such a lack of trust are trying to win the hearts and minds of their own conservative base, by saying this isn't amnesty. we are not going to give the president a win and we don't trust him either. but they want a bill as well. i'll assume both sides want a bill because they need a bill. we can be cynical about it later. but it is in president obama's interest for a legacy and the republican party interest for winning a coalition that gives them the white house a
and i agree that the senator and president obama are distracting from a serious debate about the issues have the country. i refuse to sit quiet and not get upset when i am called all these names. >> i used to get offended by this stuff all the time. if i let myself offended what democrats say about me as a conservative. i would rather be the cheerful person, i can think we can fix it. just ignore them. it sounds so ridiculous to complain about fox news. >> sean: i'm not worried about the criticism of fox news. that is evidence we get under their skin. >> yes. >> sean: what i am furious about it is beneath the dig analytical of the office of the president and senate. >> the senator said that on the floor of the united states senate. that is not right. >> i think that is more persuasive, wait, i'm not for old people eating cat food. it's better to say, old people to have more money in their pocket so they can make their own decisions. >> i have to tell you something. the reason why they keep believing it is because people believe the lie. >> here is the other reason. mary is popular senat
and not just a path to legal status for the 11 million plus illegal immigrants in this country. obama wants am inmates at this. it seems that marco rubio had a similar reaction to the so-called plan. he issued the following statement. he said i'm concerned by the president's unwillingness to accept significant enforcement triggers before current undocumented immigrants can apply to a green card. without such in place, enforcement systems will never be implemented and will be back in just a few years dealing with mill yows of new undocumented people in the country. finally the speech left the impression he believes reforming immigration quick sli more important than reforming immigration rights. if we want to talk about immigration reform, we first need to secure the border or one day god forbid, a terrorist is going cross that border and wreak havoc on american soil. we need to stop the drugs and human trafficking all taking place along that border. i've seen this all firsthand. i have covered the border extensively. i have been out with agents, in their boats, all terrain vehicles, out on hor
that this is the main vehicle. the gang of eight bill will be the main vehicle with president obama's backing. if you need an example of why republicans need to get on this issue, nevada started the 2012 election as a swing state. by the end of it neither party was spending money there because the hispanic community was so aligned with the democratic candidate that mitt romney couldn't compete. it went the way of new mexico in 2008, and i think republicans recognized that this is a first step. simply signing on to immigration reform doesn't mean they're going to win 70% of the hispanic vote, but they need to get this issue behind them because electorally speaking they would struggle for a decade or two decades if they don't. sxwro we've seen a mood swing. republicans know they have to get right on this, and this is why you're seeing this coalition come together so quickly. there's support for it. there's a new cbs news poll that shows that a majority, 51%, believe in a path to sit sfwlenship. there's only 24% that say the undocumented immigrant should get out. >> that will be one of the final issues
upon the secretary of state me and the obama and to finally issue the approval and grant the permitting process so that the keystone pipeline can move forward in our country can have a better opportunity for jobs. the american people can have a better chance for employment in our country can reduce reliance on oil from places that are so insecure. i hope this is a turning point. nebraska has cheated the opportunity for the keystone pipeline now to be approved. thank you. >> a couple questions. [inaudible] >> well, senator hagel has been at his hearing at. i think it is too early to predict conditions under which his nominations will be considered. he has visited a number of us. we've had a chance to discuss his positions privately and i were looking forward to taking a publicly and we'll see how it's going to be processed on the senate floor when it comes out of committee. [inaudible] >> on that issue, am unclear as to whether the majority leader wants to bring a gun measure to the floor. it will be to hand to determine whether receipt that issue on the floor, the judiciary committee to
situation room." a major speech on a hot button issue. president obama speaking out a while ago in las vegas about comprehensive immigration reform. his remarks come one day after a bipartisan group of senators laid out a framework for a possible bill that would be a path to citizenship to increase border security. but the president also made it clear if congress can't act quickly on that, he'll put forward his own bill. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by. detail for us what is in the president's proposal? >> reporter: wolf, detail is the key word. in the past, the president has been accused of standing for policy proposals short on specifics. not today. president obama laid out a plan for comprehensive immigration reform that would change the immigration system in three central ways. first, it would strengthen workplace enforcement, specifically by making it harder to hire illegal immigrants in the workplace and make it harder for illegals to get jobs here. secondly, it would create a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented workers who are already
looking at 2014, but 2016. around this issue. and engaging that obama coalition. for so long, the passion and enthusiasm had been on the gun lobby side and now you see on the gun control side. i think there had, i think, in some ways been a bit of an apprehension and linking sandy hook to the things going on in chicago for many, many years. over the last three years. 270 school-aged children in chicago have been gunned down. >> yeah. >> that's many, many, many sandy hooks and so i think this incident tragic as it is will in some ways link these two events and link what has been going on a lot of times in the cities around increase gun control and background checks to this larger conversation. we'll see, of course, obama in minneapolis, on monday. doing interesting things there. but again, i think the assault weapons ban, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of
convinced mccain but his ideas did convince another influential politician, president obama. the two of them, president obama and chuck hagel toured iraq and afghanistan together in 2008. afterwards obama said in a they agreed on almost every foreign policy issue. there was even speculation that the president might tap hagel for vice president. well, that, of course, didn't happen but the president did get hagel's endorsement. maybe that's what accounts for some of john mccain's bitterness. mccain isn't the only one who is lining up against hagel though. senator lindsey graham, mccain mccain's new bff also took a shot. he brought up hagel's newest comment that, quote the jewish lobby intimidateed law makers. >> name one person in your opinion who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first. >> name one. >> i don't know. >> why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> jennifer: that, too went on and on. after the hearing graham, who up until that point had been none noncommittal told foreign policy magazine that he was unlikely to vo
unexpectedly tough talk by president obama last week on the issue of climate change. i want to start by showing our viewers what exactly the president had to say. >> we will respond to climate change knowing that the failure to do so would fail our children and future generations. some may deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot seed to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industry, we must climbs it's promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure. a forrest in water ways, our crop land and snow cappedpeeks. that is how we will preserve our planet, command it to our god. that is what will lend meaning to the creed of fathers once declired. >> a lot of time spent on the issue of climate change in that speesh. was it a surprise to folks in the environmental community? >> i think they expected a shout out
it comes to immigration? president obama is en route to las vegas where he will outline his immigration priorities just hours from now which comes amid signs of bipart sfwlan agreement on the issue in the senate. for senate leaders it has been a swift path from this attitude -- >> drug and human smuggling, home invasions, murder. >> we're outmanned. with all the illegals in america, more than half come through arizona. >> complete the dang fence. >> to this attitude. >> we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> but even if john mccain has changed his tune, getting the house gop to harmonize may not be so easy. michael steel spokesman for john boehner, was decidedly noncommitmental on the issue. "the speaker welcomes the work of leaders like senator rubio on this issue and is looking forward to learning more about the proposal in the coming days. majority leader eric cantor would not comment on a portion of the bill
. of course, she's not going away mad. so there are ways in which barack obama could continue to tap her or tap her husband in some -- in some foreign policy issue. i wouldn't think that's impossible looking ahead for this term. >> susan, secretary clinton was asked about a possible run in that interview in 2016. we have to play that. >> and i don't think, you know, either he or i can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year. >> but she also laughed earlier in that interview when they were touching on that very issue. steve croft was saying, you know, how long will the president's endorsement last? and so amid the reports of joe biden as you were talking about that and his possible presidential bid in 2016, could the president be forced to choose between the two here? >> you know, traditionally presidents have not weighed in on the nomination battle that follows them. i would assume that president obama might well follow that path. it's probably a wise one. i wouldn't be surprised if you saw barack obama and joe biden doing a joint interview at some point i
. you said all elections come down to the economy. you can make the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this country were changing dramatically. they figured that out and ho
's article latest issue touches on president obama's inaugural challenge on climate change in the end, no matter what kind of deal the administration makes with china, the harsh truth, it be enough to diffuse the climate crisis unless he takes a bold stance and solution like cap and tax or carbon tax and unless he limits the change in response to future generations and response to global warm iing requiring de of birth do something he has shown little inclination for, leading a massive grassroots campaign to rally the american people and overcome the fossil fuel industry and its republican allies. what has the president done and realistically possible the next four years. not the first thing was fuel efficiency standards for vehicles, a very big deal, will save 6 billion tons of carbon going into the atmosphere in the life of the program. that was a big deal and cut that deal in the bailout industry and had them over a big barrel. he has done a lot of investment with the green energy renewables. he hasn't really talked about it. that's a problem not just about rhetoric, helping the am
be made the president obama won a second term on social issues. what we have been served better if the discussions during these debates centered more on the economy? >> i do think, in the end, this one came down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as sort of a guidepost for where he wants to go from here -- i did not hear him talk a lot about, during the campaign, he seemed to be talking about jobs and getting people back to work. i think the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think he thought -- that his people thought that they had -- what they concentrated on -- in some ways this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters through polls and recognizing that the demographic in this country where changing demographic -- were changing dramatically. the republicans
." >> what was the break through the turning point for president clinton and president obama do you think? >> i think bill certainly worked very hard for the president in the '08 general election. he also consulted with the white house on some of the economic issues. and was very committed to you know, being as good of a supporter as he possibly could. and they just got to know each other more than they ever had before. i don't think there had been an opportunity for them to do that before this last four years. >> all started in that 2010. tuck see the rest of clinton's interview with andrea mitchell. nobody knows the clintons better than andrea mitchell at our network, andrea mitchell reports at 1:00. >> up next, senator lamar alexander will be here next to talk. plus, egypt is on the brink again two years after the fall of mubarak, the military chief of that country warns the civilian government could collapse. but first a look ahead. the president's schedule today. keep an eye out before our good friend telemundos, jose diaz-balart a sitdown with the president this afternoon. we'll hav
